Rare French Made Florinox Side Opener
[FLORINOX-01]

RARE! Early Production French Made FLORINOX Switchblade with Safety

RARE 70's era FRENCH MADE FLORINOX Pocket Auto. We offered these years ago but since they are now out of business we have been unable to obtain any more; until now! They are extremely well made and are one of the few foreign made coil activated models made. Handcrafted in France by Florinox they feature a sliding safety.

A vintage piece from the late 70's, a sliding safety is located near the release button. The 2 3/4" mirror polished blade features 440-C Stainless. Black checkered slightly contoured handles with Brass Liners. Measures 3 1/2" closed. Tang is marked "FLORINOX ROSTFREI". A very rare and unique piece no longer manufactured.

Florinox had two versions of this model, a large and smaller model. On one model (the larger version), the blade does not lock in the open position; (designed this way as some European cities had weapons laws against knives that opened with one hand, the blade could not lock. This law applied to Paris & Berlin), however on this model the blade locks in the open position. A special chance to obtain a most unique vintage piece. Includes a custom zippered pouch.
